Mississippi River Pearls in Muscatine
As I was visiting my friend, Ann Moody, in her delightful shop, AnnsArts, on mainstreet in Muscatine one day she told me about her Muscatine pearls that she bought locally at an auction.
I happened to have my camera with and she let me take a photo. These are not minuscule pearls, but good sizes. Their baroque shapes make them unique and beautiful. I'm glad there are still some Mississippi River pearls left in our city. They are local treasures.
Thank you Ann for sharing your lovely pearls.
And when in Muscatine, Ann's shop is a "must do". She has many things relating to our history such as local vintage pearl buttons.
